The room (Number 9) was cosy and compact with everything we needed. Comfortable bed and very good shower although there was no bath. The building is very old and as a consequence the floors are undulating and creaky but this adds to the character.
We were a family in the area on business and each room was on a different rate because we booked on different days. It is cheaper to book via an agency rather than directly with the hotel and our double occupancy was substantially cheaper than the two other single occupancy rooms.
Continental breakfast was included but it was not very exciting and the fruit on offer was so battered as to be nearly inedible. My brother asked for butter instead of 'spread' and the answer was just 'no'. No explanation and no apology. Our second morning was similar. The staff were expecting a really busy day and they told us how much they had to do and how fully booked they were for meals as if it was a burden and guests are a bit of a nuisance. No cheese spread available for breakfast that morning and again no offer or explanation but the butter had appeared.
This is a very comfortable, very popular large pub with good pub accommodation and food. It was warm in the evening and the serving of the good evening food was brisk and efficient. The staff were often pleasant but rule driven and unwilling to bend to offer added extras to guests. Had the breakfast range been wider and the breakfast staff been more helpful (they were chatty but not helpful) I would have given a rating of 5.
